Parachute Battalion was shot on location at Fort Bennings, Georgia, and includes dramatic scenes of parachute drops performed by star troopers from the 501st Parachute Battalion. The story revolves around a motley crew of fresh recruits, each signing up for his own reasons but finally emerging as a seasoned paratrooper. Brilliantly highlights that nobody starts off as a pro in the Armed Forces.
